The school was established in 1853, in premises provided by Sir William Jaffray Bart, whose family lived at Skilts. Later the school moved into Ankcorn House where mainly the farm workers children were educated. It continued as a village school until the mid 60’s when Head Teacher, Miss C.B. Carratt moved the pupils into a new building on the Henley Road. The school was officially opened on 24th February 1965 at 3.00pm with the dedication being performed by the Right Reverend C.K.N. Bardsley – Lord Bishop of Coventry, and officially opened by Sir Lionel Russell, Chief Education Officer for the City of Birmingham.
At the time the building accommodated 50 children and cost £16,000 to build. The opening was marked by the planting of an oak tree at a cost of 11 shillings and 3 pence.
Miss P. Jutson became Head Teacher in 1976 followed by Mrs. H. Davis in 1988 and Miss B. Julian in 1990, when the school began a rapid expansion. Today the school has approximately 120 pupils with an age range of 4-11 years educated in four classes. To accommodate the additional pupils the building was extended to include two extra classrooms, a new hall, a staff room and office. An area of land was donated by Mr. Green to be used as a nature trail and conservation area.
In 2006 Mrs E Hayton became Headteacher and expanded the IT facilities by converting the old hall into an I.T. suite for use by all classes and introducing i-pads for use by pupils. In October 2012 the school achieved a ‘good’ rating by Ofsted with the inspector commenting that ‘pupils of all abilities achieve well and the parent and carers think highly of the school’.
In September 2014 the school appointed a new Headteacher Mr Alexander Finch.Before becoming the Headteacher at Mappleborough Green School he was the Assistant Headteacher at St Nicholas C of E Primary School in Alcester for 5 years and before that he was the Literacy Subject Leader at the school and a Class Teacher in Year 6. He moved to Warwickshire with his family in 2007 after working in London for fifteen years.
The future of the school looks assured and we look forward to further expansion and the continuance of sound educational progress in a loving, caring environment for all.
